    Here are pics of my coop built using lumber laying around my farm. I have tried to make it bomb proof living around coyotes, bobcats, skunks, coons etc. Hot wire top and bottom, buried chicken wire to prevent digging under, overhead natural tree cover and my favorite, an automatic door from Adadore.
    Inside is a freeze proof waterer, gravity pvc self feeder and slide out floors for cleaning.[​IMG][/IMG]
